This wonderful quote from the work of C. Lewis is one of the most important things I have learned about intercessory prayer.that it may not change anything for the one I am praying for, but it will surely change me.
I am a work in progress, I will trust in the Lord, and I will keep my faith strong. For I know the roads I am given will make me a stronger person. I am growing as I go on these adventures with good attentions. Stay Strong Beautiful Things Are In Store!
I need to remember this. Jesus is the ultimate lifeguard. Remember that next time you feel like you are drowning under the weights/pressure of life. Feel anxious - depressed - sad - lose someone you love? Take refuge in the arms of YOUR Lord.
"Lord, if it's not your will, let it slip through my grasp and give me the peace not to worry about it anymore." - however, if something is going to slip through your grasp it may require actively opening your hands
